7 Areas of Learning

 

Within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), all areas of learning are considered important and interdependent.  For example physical development and fine motor control help develop writing skills.

 

Creativity is fundamental to successful learning as it enables children to make connections between one area of learning and another.

 

Personal and social development also runs throughout many aspects of learning as children develop and demonstrate their ability to work with others and concentrate for longer periods when learning new skills.

Literacy Activities

 

Literacy involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and beginning to read and write.

 

Children should be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems and other reading materials) to ignite interest.

Numeracy Activities

 

Involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces and measures.
